OBJECTIVES Pre-analytical factors are a major source of variability in laboratory results. Failure to identify these factors can lead to falsely increased or decreased results and to erroneous clinical decisions. We aimed to investigate several pre-analytical factors influencing ammonia measurement, and to quantify their effect on the apparent increase in ammonia concentration. DESIGN AND METHODS Blood samples were taken from 20 healthy volunteers and submitted to five different sets of… CONTINUE READING
